Saturday, October 23
*Al Masry Vs URA – 8pm

URA FC will be hoping to complete task against Egypt’s Al Masry in the return leg of the second round of the 2021/22 CAF Confederation Cup.

The two sides played out a goalless draw in the first leg at St Mary’s Stadium in Kitende last Saturday.

URA FC were the better side especially in the late stages of the game but the Egyptian rued wasted chances including a missed penalty by Amr Moussa.

Coach Sam Timbe said after the first leg at Kitende: “We planned to win but unfortunately it couldn’t happen. This is a fair result. I loved the team spirit of each player because they fought so hard today despite a late scare.”

URA FC missed over 10 players after the club confirmed that they returned positive Covid19 results.

The Club has not revealed their travelling squad to Alexandria but sources have it that some of the players who missed the first leg including Captain Shafic Kagimu and striker Steven Mukwala have made the trip.

URA FC beat Ethiopian Coffee 5-2 on aggregate to reach this stage while Al Masry received a bye.

The Tax Collectors made their debut in 2006 when they were eliminated by Al-Merrikh at the round of 32.

In 2015, they ousted ASSM Elgeco Plus of Madagascar at the preliminary round before falling to Orlando Pirates at the first round.

Al Masry were knocked out by KCCA FC in 2017 at the playoff round. They have made the groups twice including the 2019/20 season when they were eliminated by eventual winners RS Berkane in the quarters.
